Brighton v Yeovil Preview, Championship, Friday 25th April 2014

With just two games of the season left to play for Brighton & Hove Albion, they will be fully aware that if they can manage to win both then they might just snatch a place in the end of season play off promotion places, if Reading slip up in their final two matches one of which is against high flying Burnley.

Yeovil are not confirmed to having been relegated yet, but being rooted at the bottom of the league table on just 37pts, they would need a miracle to survive as Birmingham City would need to lose both of their final two games and conceded in excess of around 5 goals a game for Yeovil to stand any hope of being involved in Championship football come August, so it does seem like the writing in on the wall in regards to Yeovil’s chances.

Brighton Team News:

Manager Oscar Garcia has almost a full squad to choose his starting lineup from this game with the only absentee being midfielder Andrew Crofts who is out with a cruciate ligament rupture for the rest of the season. Striker Jose Leonardo Ulloa is the clubs current top goalscorer this season with 13 and he will be leading the attack up front on friday night with the possibility of being joined by fellow striker Craig Mackail-Smith who has only played four previous times this season.

Yeovil Team News:

Manager Gary Johnson has no reported injuries or suspensions for this game, but with his side almost certainly to be relegated come friday night it will be interesting to see what starting lineup he decides to go with for this game and could use this opportunity to provide some fringe players with a chance to shine.

Brighton v Yeovil Head to Head Statistics:

Friday night’s game from the Amex Stadium will become only the 12th meeting between these two clubs over the years. Brighton have managed to secure 4 victories overall with 3 coming at the Amex Stadium and Yeovil have managed to also secure 4 victories overall with 2 coming at the Amex Stadium.

The remaining 3 matches finished all square, but none of these happened at the Amex Stadium.

The head to head statistics table shown below shows the previous 5 meetings between the two clubs and clearly shows that Brighton & Hove Albion have a clear advantage having managed to win 3 and draw 2 with Yeovil having failed to win any.

Brighton v Yeovil Match Betting Odds Market

Brighton have to win this game on friday night to stand any chance of making the end of season play of promotion places and with home advantage and a packed out Amex Stadium fully behind them it should not come as much of a surprise to see the online bookmakers making them the clear odds on favourites to win this game at a current best price of 4/9 with Coral (Deposit £5 & Receive £20 Free Bets, New Customers Only).

The Draw is not going to do any favours for Brighton in this game, but looking at the recent form of both clubs we do see that combined there has been 5 draws and with the reverse fixture between these two clubs having finished 0-0, it might be worth getting a little something on the draw at a current best price of 19/5 with BetVictor (£25 Free Bets for New Customers) as you cover bet for this one.

Yeovil are basicly going to be relegated after this game on friday night and all the players involved in the squad will be fully aware of that and as such I can’t really see any of them busting a gut or having their mind focused on this match and their current best price of 8/1 with Bet365 (£200 Matched Bonus Bets for New Customers) pretty much reflects their chances of winning this game on friday night.

Brighton v Yeovil Match Predictions, Tips & First Goal Scorer Bets.

Brighton have a chance to secure an end of season play of promotion spot if they can win their final two games and hope that Reading who are a point above them slip up in their final two games and that is very much a possibility with Reading having to play against high flying Burnley in their final match of the season, so that itself will provide the Brighton players with plenty of incentive to go out on friday night in front of their home fans and win this game.

Yeovil are going to be relegated after this game on friday night no matter if they were to win the game 5-0 as with being 6pts behind Birmingham City, their goal difference is just to far behind to equal that of Birmingham City and with the players obviously going to be more interested in where they are going to go on holiday in the next few weeks than the outcome of this game, this should be a very comfortable victory for the hosts.

The average goals per game statistics are suggesting this one to see between 2 or 3 goals scored and that is going to be my main Banker prediction for this match as I believe that if Brighton go 2-0 up, they will sit deep and defend their lead without taking any risks.

My Saver prediction for this game is going to be striker Jose Leonardo Ulloa Anytime Goalscorer as with the 27 year old player from Argentina the clear top goalscorer for his club this season, he will be relishing the chance to provide the fans something to cheer about come friday night.
